Including and included

The epistemological and pragmatic space is defined by a frame of reference, a horizon, axes and a center. A
frame of reference which determines the fundamental dimensions. A horizon which traces the limits of theoretical and practical possibilities and impossibilities. Axes marking the main outlines of force according to which this possibility is articulated. A center, node of convergence of the fundamental axes.

Unless being only a house of deaths, a tomb or a prison, a house of living creatures can only be an open one. A house with entries and exits. A house open to the breath of the Spirit. Far beyond what we take too quickly as an 'impassable horizon'.

Tell me what you include... I mean the ultimate space out of which there is for you nothing than emptiness and indifference. Thus the total space of the 'house' which you live in and who gives you all you need (materially, socially, psychologically, intellectually, spiritually) to live and survive. Your absolute 'oïkos'.

Behind included spaces, there are including ones, and finally an ultimate including space. And this one is the space of the sense of sense. Where is it ultimately?

Finite or infinite totality
Fundamentally 'there is'
or 'I am'
open space
or vectorial temporality
or Transcendence
Same order
or different orders

Something like an anthropocentric rupture begins to be felt in our occident as from the year 1100. When our ultimate including space is being no longer solely God but man himself.

The key of human intelligibility is not in the
included contents but in the including big whole. The inside becomes fully understandable only starting from the outside. It is from outside and from outside only that the 'whole' lights actually. The whole is more essential than its parts. It's the forest that explains the trees and not the reverse.

But how can you measure a space inside this space itself? We are taken on board. The Einsteinian theory of relativity can be used as paradigm. The 'length' of our meters and the 'duration' of our terrestrial clocks are necessarily 'deformed' by their space-time localization. We can only measure with our deformations. That requires a mental exit. You have to leave.

Impassable horizon? Today's human possibility feels trapped into its horizon. At the same time it hopelessly tries to cross the limits. When totality spreads only in pure immanence there is no more space elsewhere. 'Trans' itself can only function in immanent enclosure. Simply as a limited verb 'transcending' without transcendence.

For the spirit which thus lost its natural opening to go beyond itself there can remain only one possibility of exit. And this one can only be 'negative', meaning something like an act of rupture. But it is impossible to leave the cave differently. One needs such a daring and violent risk.
